Clients and customers loved being cheered up for the season at their favorite businesses. Keep it Classy with the traditional colors of Christmas, but add in a sprinkle of spice with unexpected touches that compliment the décor. At this real estate title company, family friendly ornaments, snowflakes, and small packages were mixed within beautiful holly and poinsettia floral for a crowd pleasing combination. Sprays of gold leaves, red balls, and curly sprays add projection and dimension. Black and gold zebra ribbon  with traditional Red and green ribbon are tied into showy bows! This gives the tree a big punch of WOW! Elements of lime green also kick it up a notch for this Very Merry Christmas Office.

We start at the top of the tree placing 2 bows back to back leaving part of the tree top showing. So many times we see bows perched on top of the tree and we prefer to wire on lower on the tree top and then placing 2nd bow in back. This gives the appearance of a bow all the way around!

Next place the focal point or tree topper  (the Red and White lollipop) and secure with florist wire. A faux tree, green or flocked has wired branches making them easy to decorate and secure bows, florals, balls and ornaments. However the same decorating techniques can work on a live Christmas Tree.

Floral stems complement our Christmas Confection tree theme. 3 different floral sprays are used at the top and placed directly into the top of the tree, no need for wiring on this top. A Fuchsia Poinsettia is added for a finishing touch.

Peppermint Sequin ball spray in Red and white are another seer addition to this tree theme.

Show Me a Fall Wreath (that turns to Christmas?)

Green wreath base with Lime green sparkle berry garland and wired fall garland and picks to add for fall celebration!

A green wreath for fall? Yes look around, there are many trees, shrubs and bushes that are evergreen and the wreath will look alive. The basics will even change out to Christmas! When storage is an issue, a great solution is a transitional wreath.

Definition of a transitional wreath: Wreath base and a garland or spray added on that can transition or change out seasonally. One base many seasons!

In this case we chose a mixed pine wreath (sturdy wire and good quality greenery). Have you ever had a wreath or garland that looked good the first year(and it was a really good deal), and then the next year it looked like crushed, limp dog hair? Well the saying goes …. You get what you pay for! We like to use a quality faux greenery wreath that is made from shredded vinyl, the thicker the ply of vinyl the more resilience or memory the greenery has to bounce back from year to year after being stored. You can tell when you run the greenery limbs thru your hand and it feels stiff, (if it feels really soft, it will not hold up).

Next we choose a great lime green crackle berry garland that matched with our fall choices and would transition to Christmas with ease. So now we have our transitional base.

Adding fall picks and sprays to a green wreath by wiring in with the greenery allows it to be taken off and the plain base to transform to Christmas!

Fun fall ribbon, a touch of the wild side with leopard print ribbon.

Wired ribbon in a mix of solid, plaid and yes leopard ribbon has whimsy and fun. Long tails allow for the ribbon to be worked in the wreath! Wire the bow on with the wire used to hold the bow together

Need to know how to tie a bow? Check out the Show Me Decorating app $2.99 for iPhone & iPad in the AppStore!

http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/show-me-decorating/id386099720?mt=8

add fall garland and picks (do not glue) and use the greenery wire to wind in and attach

Fall garland with autumn leaves was added to wreath base all the way around, and held on by winding in greenery, next the fall picks with pumpkins and gourds were added, again by winding in and securing with the greenery base limbs. We like to use hand wrapped or wired sprays, picks and berries which allows us to shape out adding dimension and interest! (no wire is limp)

Wire on fall garland and fall picks, add ribbon bow and a fall sign as your focal point

Fun

Tune in again and see how this base wreath transitions to Christmas with a few easy steps and supplies!

Happy decorating y’all!
